I didn’t do dried flowers, BUT I did freeze-dry my flowers after the ceremony, so this could give you an idea of what they would look like. Funny, I felt my flowers were too big, and when they were dried, the size was much better and I wished they had been dried at the time. I don’t really see why it would be cheaper, but maybe I’m missing something? Would you purchase dried flowers then arrange them yourself? My only concern there would be that the dried flowers are very fragile. I lose petals even with the slightest movement of my bouquet. Here is what mine looked like dried, please excuse the quality, they were wrapped in plastic wrap.

You can buy preserved flowers rather than dried, and they look much more full and lush. They are expensive, but it’s nice to know they are “real” and they look great, in my opinion. 

This is a link to an etsy site where they have preserved flower bouquets and such, but you can find them loose as well:
